We are trying hard to come up with something good for that duct tape contest. Maybe we can use it on the Lightning Bug who wants to play,play,play.

Don't let that millstone hang on to you Frankie. Rally the troops and we will all help get it off:)

We saw a giant mill stone at New Salem that had to be turned by oxen! That thing was huge! I sure hope we wouldn't get caught by that thing.

Thanks for telling us about millstones. We saw you had trouble over at pet theater. If you have scripts turned off on your computer you might have to fix it were it allows all the scripts on the page.

Hi Mr Frankie, thanks for the updates. That mill stone could come in handy mum says cause my legs are like springs and it might slow me down. I don't know what she is talking about. I just like to jump around about 87 times every minute. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
